six:forty Recap

Author: BC Tech Association

sixforty Powered by Return It Electronics | EPRA and SAPOn March 3, 2015, the BCTIA Innovation Hub was host to over 100 people who came to watch four amazing entrepreneurs accept the six:forty challenge and share their stories of how they came to be tech entrepreneurs.

From selling ice in Guatemala, to leading counter-terrorist operations in Ulster, each story was unique and incredibly powerful.

We commend our fearless speakers for sharing their personal stories, entertaining our audience and filling The Hub with laughter, inspiration, and many heartwarming moments.

We’d like to give a big thank you to our presenters:

  • Mark Cunningham, Founder & President, D&B Cloud Innovation Center
  • Richard Eaton, Co-Founder & Partner, Berlineaton
  • Karina Hayat, President & Co-Founder, Prizm Media
  • Jeff Sinclair, Co-Founder & Partner, Eventbase Technology Inc

If you weren’t able to attend six:forty, or if you just want to relive the evening, check out some photos from the event in the slideshow, or visit our Flickr page to see more photos from this and other BCTIA events.

As with everything we do, this event wouldn’t have been possible without the support of incredible partners. Six:forty was powered by Return-It Electronics Powered by EPRA BC and SAP, and our guests enjoyed Red Truck beer throughout the evening. We’d also like to give a special thanks to Kirsten Sutton, VP & Managing Director of SAP Labs Canada, as she was not only representing SAP at the event, but was also a fabulous master of ceremonies for the event.
